More radio, more listeners Contributions from citizen reporters arrive at an internet platform hosted by URN, which is Uganda's largest radio news agency.
Selected local radio stations from the URN network can access this platform and their journalists decide which news items they wish to pick up.
Harvest Plus supports the National Agricultural Research Organisation (NARO) to breed, test, and release varieties of OSP developed in partnership with the International Potato Center (CIP) and iron beans developed through the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT).
Sweet potatoes rank third among the common food staples in Uganda, and are often eaten with beans in many parts of the country.
We also train “lead mothers” to further share this information along with recommended feeding, hygiene and sanitation practices within their communities.
We raise demand for OSP and iron beans through activities with a range of stakeholders, including schools and local governments.
When local radio stations decided to broadcast more local content, they also gained more audiences.
Harvest Plus improves nutrition and public health in Uganda by promoting orange sweet potato that provides more vitamin A and beans that provide more iron in the diet.
We work with more than 15 partners drawn from government, business, and civil society.
"Because of the increased inflow of reports from wider communities, more people get attached to the stations we work with", says Isaac Mugera, URN's project coordinator.
"This has increased the radios' listenership and potentially translates into more business from advertising from both commercial and non profit organizations." In order to ensure the quality of the incoming news and to protect the safety of citizen reporters and their sources, the radio journalists of Radio Buddu, Mega FM and other participating stations act as mentors who constantly guide and support the citizen reporters in their tasks.
